I grew up traveling with my family and I am always excited to see what is around the next bend. My first trip outside of the U.S. was in 2005 on a trip with my college and I was hooked. I love the perspective I gain while traveling, whether I am visiting a new country, experiencing a new culture, or just getting away from my day to day responsibilities to relax and clear my mind.

I became a travel agent to help others make their travel dreams a reality and as stress-free as possible. There is so much to see in this world and so many ways to experience it that it can be overwhelming and time-consuming to plan your own itinerary. This is where I come in. When I talk to a client about their travel plans, I instantly start thinking about what kind of memories they could make. Maybe you want a relaxing vacation with beautiful island views, or you want to explore caves or take a tour allowing you to connect with ancient history. A trip including all of the above is possible too! I want to help you plan a trip that gives you memories that will last a lifetime.
